The white and purple chrysanthemums bloomed against the flower lew roue bushes, and the little gray Michaelmas daisy flourished where the dead carnations had spread their glories.

There are some zealous opponents of high tariff who attribute all our depression to that alone. I can safely say that it is only one of the many causes. I heré venture the assertion that the de- feat of our tariff reiormerB was largely due to the fact,that with remarkable unanimity they deolared protective tariff the sole cause of the present hard times.

From artieie number two, it appears that yft realized from cotton in 1887, $18.331-8 per aore. This was the avearge. By ref- ered to page 255 of the first annual report of the bureau of agrioulture lor the state of Texas, we find that the iarmers had in wheat 630,219 acres. The total amount produeed was 6,174,104 bushels. The ayer- age per acre was a fraction under 10 bush* els. WTe will nuke 10 bushels the bails. The total value of said crop was $3,708,072. This gives a (ruction over 00 cents per bushel, but we will make 60 centi the basis. Ten bushels per acre at 00 cents per bushels gives us $0 as the amount realised per aore from wheat. Now all the cultiva- tion that wheat requires is thp thorough preparation of the soil before It is planted.
